2nd Time Around with Atv and Steve Baloff

Fund: Advanced Technology Ventures

Posted by thermocline on 2007-08-27

PUBLIC:

I have taken funding from ATV at two companies. At my last company ATV invested in our B round. We pitched to Steve Baloff who after the funding became a valuable member of our board. When we met with ATV we had already received several favorable series B offers from like or larger VC firms. With other deals on the table we were in a position to choose who we would take money from and we choose ATV after getting to know Steve and the team at ATV. The whole process from first pitch through negotiation and the closing of the round took just over two weeks. Key to our decision was that we trusted Steve's experience and judgment during the negotiations and we felt that he would help the company grow to the next level. I'm glad to say the trust turned out to be well deserved and about a year later the company returned nicely for us and for ATV when we were acquired during an unsolicited bidding war. My current company has taken series A and B funding from ATV and I again have Steve as a key board member. Not only do I highly trust and respect Steve's business judgment but the rest of the company and board do as well. Having had Steve on two different boards I wouldn't hesitate to take funding from ATV again.
